Latch On To Our Latest Jewelry Love: Super-Sized Links

In a More is More world, we're all for going the distance with our accessories. And while we'll always have an affection for delicate little heirlooms, the recent appearance of jumbo-size linked jewelry has us jumping on the chain gang, big time. In particular, we're loving the XL open-link chains from Michael Kors and the colorful chunky collar necklace from Louis Vuitton, a perfect match of classic and quirky. In polished gunmetal or vibrant plastics, we're even toying with the idea of wearing these blown-up links in multiples. But given the impact of some of these super-sized chains, a solo statement could easily do the trick.
